Al-Haakimiyyah As A Branch Of Tawheed. by Taamas111 (m): 4:30pm on January 11

Question:

Is there 4 branches of tawheed? 1.
there is tawheed-ur-rububiyyah 2. there
is tawheed-ul-uluhiyyah 3. there is
tawheed-ul-asmaai-was-swifaat, what
about Tawheed of legislation?

Fatwa:
All perfect praise be to Allah, The Lord
of the Worlds. I testify that there is
none worthy of worship except Allah,
and that Muhammad is His slave
and Messenger.
After investigating the texts of
the Quran and the Sunnah of
the Prophet, we find that
Tawheed is divided into three
categories:

- Tahwheed Ar-Ruboobiyyah:
which is believing that Allah is
the only Creator, Cherisher,
Sustainer and it is He Alone
Who takes care of all the
matters of the worlds. Whoever
believes that Allah has a
supporter in these matters or
that someone other than Allah
carries them out, he commits
Kufr (disbelief).

- Tawheed Al-Uloohiyya: which is
believing that Allah is one and
He is The Only One worthy of
being worshipped. Whoever
entitles a portion of worship or
a form of worship to other than
Allah, he commits Shirk
(associating partners with
Allah). For instance if someone
prays to a creature, idol, or
tree seeking reward from Allah,
or offers sacrifice to them, etc,
he performs Shirk in Uloohiyyah
since he sets partners in
worshipping Allah.

- Tawheed Al-Asmaa' Was-Sifat:
which is approving and believing
in all the Names and Attributes
that Allah has described Himself
with or His Prophet
described Him with such as Ar-
Rahman, Ar-Raheem,
Al-‘Atheem, etc.
No one is allowed to call Him a
Name other than the Names
and Attributes that He gave to
Himself or His Prophet
Muhammad, called Him
with.
However, some scholars
divided Tawheed into two
categories only:

1- Tawheed of Knowledge and
Confirmation (of the Actions,
Names and Attributes of
Allah): this category includes
Tawheed Ar-
Ruboobiyyah and Tawheed Al-
Asmaa' Was-Sifat.

2- Tawheed At-Talab Wal-Qasd
(of our actions towards Allah):
this means to worship Allah
Alone without associating with
Him any partners,
which is Tawheed Al-Uloohiyyah.
The meaning is the same; it is
only the names of these
categories which differ. From
this, people derived Tawheed Al-
Hakimiyyah, which means that
Allah Alone Has the right to
legislate, and they classified it
as a separate category for its
importance. Nonetheless, in
principle it is included in
Tawheed Ar-Ruboobiyyah.
Allah Knows best.
